DB Bistro Moderne brings casual dining to a new altitude. The space is elegant, with hardwood floors, mirrored walls, leather chairs and benches and a funky lighting scheme that evokes 1970s chic. The ceilings are low-slung, creating an intimate vibe and encouraging muted conversations. No detail is overlooked, from the salmon-coloured monogrammed napkins to the luxurious zebra-tiled loos. To escape the hustle and bustle of the main room, there’s seating in the tinted glass-enclosed wine room, which can be booked for private events for up to 20 people. The space is ideal for working lunches, as it’s wired for high-speed Internet access and telephone access and has a dedicated sound system. If you need more space for a special soirée, the entire restaurant can been booked.
European Sophistication Meets West Coast Flavours
From Quadra Island mussels and bacon-veiled Arctic char to roasted leg of lamb and crispy duck confit, DB Bistro Moderne recreates traditional French fare for a Vancouver audience. House specials include tarte flambée and escargot and chicken oyster fricassee, and the original $28 sirloin burger filled with braised short ribs and black truffles is legendary. The menu changes seasonally to reflect what’s fresh, and local, organic ingredients are used whenever possible.
